What Is Rehab?

Residential rehabilitation – otherwise known as “rehab” – is the name for addiction treatment carried out on-site at a dedicated facility, and also for such a facility itself. Treatment at rehab typically comprises two main phases: detoxification (or “detox”), which may be medically assisted; and therapy.

Rehabs typically have attractive and peaceful settings, in which patients can focus on their recovery away from temptation. Crucially, rehabs are also very confidential facilities, so that patients can relax safe in the knowledge that the details of their condition may become common knowledge.

Rehab is usually considered to provide the most effective treatment of addiction (in terms of producing long-term recovery) because its holistic approach addresses both the immediate challenges of physical dependency and the longer-term one of psychological addiction. Treatment which only addresses one of these aspects (which is usually physical dependency) is much less likely to result in permanent abstinence on the part of the addict.

How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?

When it comes to battling addiction, time is of the essence: every day that goes by while someone is struggling with substance abuse is another day during which they are at risk of an overdose, or of suffering from an accident or a violent act driven by drink or drugs.

Viewed from another perspective, the sooner an addict is prepared to admit to their condition and seek help, the sooner that help can be provided and the sooner they can set out on their journey to recovery.

The NHS offers various addiction treatment services, including rehab, and many are of a very high standard: however, demand is extremely high (especially in a high-risk location such as Exeter) and waiting times can be disconcertingly long.

If you desperately need help, you may not wish to waste any more time before exploring the private options which are available to you. To discuss next steps, call 0800 024 1455 now.

Advantages of Private Rehab

As mentioned above, rehab provides a peaceful, secluded, secure and confidential setting in which an addict can focus fully on their recovery without the distractions and temptations of the outside world. Upon entering rehab, an addict will embark on detox, assisted by highly experienced medical personnel there to assure that withdrawal is as safe and as comfortable as possible (which may involve the provision of medication).

After detox, the addict will engage therapy – both one-to-one and group – aimed at addressing the root causes of their addiction, as well as at constructing defence mechanisms against relapse; they will also receive bespoke dietary and fitness plans and may benefit from an array of other resources available.

Following a stay in any quality rehab, a patient will receive free aftercare (for up to a year): it is important to remember that recovery is not complete the moment a patient walks out of the facility, but is ongoing and may not be a smooth and easy process. Aftercare can help reduce the risk of relapse and provide the recovering addict with vital support at critical junctures.

What Does Rehab Cost in Exeter?

The cost of private rehab in or near Exeter can vary significantly by treatment programme, and depending on which of a variety of optional extras are selected.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options near Exeter

If you feel that private rehab is currently not an option for you for reasons of cost, or if you do not feel that you are able to spend the required time away from family and/or work obligations, do not despair: various NHS and charity resources can be found in Exeter and across Devon which can help you combat your addiction.

Consult your GP about which of these resources may be available to you and would be most appropriate for your specific situation.

Advantages of NHS Treatment

The most prominent advantage of NHS treatment, unsurprisingly, is that it is free at the point of use, while private rehab does come at a cost: this cost may put some addicts off the idea of private rehab, though it is worth considering that compared with the costs of staying addicted it may be a minor investment – not to mention a life-saving one.

NHS services are also very accessible geographically compared with some rehabs because the NHS operates across the country, and at a high quality (though again, waiting times can be lengthy and that quality does vary by location).

Addiction Support Groups

Support groups made up of recovering addicts who come together at regular meetings for mutual support in the form of advice, solidarity, friendship and more.

These groups may be found throughout the country, and support group attendees can come from all walks of life, brought together by their shared experiences. Attendance at support groups is usually free with the only qualification for participation being a commitment to abstinence from substance abuse.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), which was founded in 1935 and runs on a 12-step programme of personal and spiritual development, is the most famous support group organisation, and the one on which most others are modelled.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA), founded in 1953 and based directly upon the AA model, is the second-largest support group organisation worldwide and caters to recovering drug addicts specifically.

In a similar vein, but supporting those recovering from addictions to specific substances, are Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), all of which operate 12-step programmes. Groups such as Al-Anon and Nar-Anon assist the families and friends of addicts and typically hold meetings alongside those for the addicts themselves.

Support groups typically meet weekly, though each local chapter is managed independently and meeting times and venues are subject to change. To find information on meetings in or near Exeter, see the relevant websites: Alcoholics Anonymous
,Narcotics Anonymous; Cocaine Anonymous; Heroin Anonymous; Marijuana Anonymous; Crystal Meth Anonymous.

Types of Counselling

Many recovering addicts utilise individual counselling, which can be provided following the completion of a treatment programme at rehab or elsewhere as a supplement to that programme, or potentially as a means of managing an addiction in advance of engaging in proper treatment.

Private addiction counsellors offering a huge variety of different approaches to therapy operate across the country; they are typically seen by private appointment on an ongoing basis – often weekly – and usually charge by appointment. Access is usually limited to predefined working hours, although some councillors do make themselves available on an emergency basis.
